    Of course, it's the wine that's the big draw here. High Timber's two cellars hold 40,000 bottles, including what the owners claim is the best South African selection in the UK, as well as many fine European vintages. The wine list gives just a taste of what's on offer; the special stuff is all downstairs, and available for viewing.

    Square Meal Says…

    Homemade biltong is one of a few nods to the motherland on a menu that offers the comfort of a burger as well as Asian-inspired five-spice duck with pistachio yoghurt. It’s a broad church, with a fashionable salad to start alongside more luxurious seared foie gras with carpaccio, plus “very good” steaks from grass-fed herds leading the line among main courses. The walk-in wine cellar is home to an impressive collection, with good options by the glass and a few greatest hits from around the world supporting the South African majority.

    High Timber sits a hop, skip and a jump from the Millennium Bridge, with views across to the Globe Theatre and Tate Modern. It’s neutral and modern in looks, with a low ceiling, plate-glass windows and plain wooden furniture – though the anonymity is enlivened by some striking art (for sale) on the walls.The restaurant’s South African ownership is evident in the wine list and occasional ingredient, but otherwise it’s a straightforward menu of mainly meaty fare that will appeal to a clientele dominated (at lunch, at least) by City males.
